city in the country at the time. baltimore, maryland, was the second. and what concerned us, and we felt that we had read a lot about the history, the treatment, the poor treatment of the french toward the vietnamese, we were funding that war. in the 1950s. france as well. and, do you have any comments on our use of agent orange against the country that, as far as we could find, hadn't done anything to anybody? and were there any observations you came across on the 1968 democratic convention, and do you see any hope for this country learning something rather than perpetuating -- i did meet soldiers who said they saw shell oil trucks crossing the front lines into north vietnam. i don't know whether you came across any ties to the oil industry. as part of this. thank you. >> in terms of agent orange, i didn't actually run across much of that in terms of what i saw of the documents in the united states. it's one of these issues -- i mean, if i were alive in vietnam, i would have opposed american intervention. i think the situation over there was already complicated, and what u.s. inter
after watching a baseball game in baltimore. he was thrown 30 feet in the air on impact and scraped along another 20 feet on the pavement after he hit the ground. i ran to his side and held him and called his name, but he was limp and still, without breath or pulse. his eyes were open with the empty stare of death, and we prayed, the two of us, there in the gutter, with only my voice. his injuries, inside and out, were massive, and for terrible days he lingered between life and death. tipper and i spent the next thirty days and nights at his bedside. our family was lifted and healed, in no small measure by the love, compassion and prayers of thousands of people, most of whom we never even knew. albert is plenty brave and strong, and with the support of three wonderful sisters-- karenna, kristin, and sarah-- and two loving parents who helped him with his exercises every morning and prayed for him every night, he pulled through. and now, thank god, he has fully recovered, and he runs and plays and torments his older sisters like any little boy.

and -- the baghdad and canada are and not in baltimore or kansas city. >> that is the first time the u.s. conference of mayors at a foreign policy. >> since 1971, when we took on the vietnam war. that was controversial. this was not a war resolution. this is a nation-building resolution. we have to start investing in our temperature of share. we have a $2.20 trillion -- lion bill. simpson-bowles should be a template for how we fix things. right and left to say that the president did not adopt the recommendation for his own commission. he did not say that he was on the simpson-bowles commission and voted against it. he did not say if you know what it does, it cut spending and closes tax loopholes and raises revenues. $4e president's plan has trillion in spending. it closes tax loopholes and refuses to extend the bush tax cuts. when people say that we are taxing the rich, we are taxing them to where we work under the clinton administration when we created $23 million, when we took the bush policies -- bush 41 -- that brought us deficit and took it to surpluses and no deficit. mayors are very different
.c. and baltimore. down to the southeast, it's going to be a hot and humid one. incredibly humid in areas across the south standing water from the storm and temps into the 80's and 90's. it's going to feel very uncomfortable and of course a lot of people still don't have electricity. that means no a.c. to cool them down as they deal with the clean up. into the northern plains and parts of the central parts of the country that's what you will see from isaac. flooding rains across illinois and indiana and out across the west, more sunshine continuing coastal areas looking very very nation again. all right, guys. send it back to you inside. here is the word of the day persuadable. are you a persuadable? one in four voters are, in fact, persuadable. bring in governor mike huckabee now to talk about this. persuadable. what does that mean? shake up numbers significant way that maybe puts tthe g ng pt geared towards the delegates. geared towards the television audience. geared towards talking with those people who are the 25% and saying you have heard mitt romney was sterile and different and cold. he
writes on twitter -- host: and here's the headline from "the baltimore sun" this morning -- host: and we'll continue to hear from you this morning on this from republicans. michael is from jacksonville, florida. thanks for calling in this morning, michael. caller: good morning. i'm calling about the mitt romney comments. i think it's appalling that the media is blown this out of proportion. what mitt romney said is a fact. 45%, 47% of our country is on entitlements. doesn't bother me at all what he had to say. i agree with him 100%. america needs to wake up and the people who don't comprehend it is -- don't understand what he's talking about on that. host: michael, thanks for calling in this morning. michael talking about the media blowing this up too much. here is the opinion piece from "the washington times" this morning, the midst of republican incompetence is the headline. host: that provides ample opportunity for mr. romney to score points by holding mr. obama accountable for his broken promises and the broken economy. that again on the opinion page of "the washington times," the le

of baltimore, governor of maryland. has been a strong surrogate for the president. this weekend ended up getting in trouble on the question of, were you better off four years ago? let's hear him try to make up for that and more. martin o'malley, right now. >> two months since our declaration of independence, outnumbered and surrounded, washington's army is about to be crushed forever at brooklyn heights. the british are closing in. with america's future hanging in the balance, word is passed up and down the maryland line, fixed pfix ed bayonettes, we're moving forward, and they do. they hold off the breach just enough for washington's army to escape and fight another day. today there is a plaque by the mass graves of those citizen soldiers and it reads, "in honor of the maryland 400, who on this battlefield saved the american army." in times of adversity, you see, for our country, for the country we love, maryland always chooses to move forward. we understand that progress is a choice. job creation is a choice. whether we move forward or back, this, too, is a choice, and that is what thi
